In one such case, the ZRP has confirmed the gruesome murder of a 9 year old boy at Matova Village Chief Zimuto, Masvingo on 4/12/20 by suspect Clever Chitiga (22) for assumed ritual purposes.
The minor was beheaded using a kitchen knife before the head was shaved in hot water and pounded in a mortar using a pestle.
